Crime and its aftermath can be a difficult and painful time. As such, the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office provides comprehensive services through its Victim’s Justice Center to assist crime victims and witnesses.

The goal of the Victim’s Justice Center is to help victims with the information they need regarding their rights and safety, and to provide them with those resources available to deal with the emotional, physical and financial impact of the crime.

The staff of the Victim’s Justice Center:

  • Provide victims with information about their case and the court process
  • Accompany victims and their families to court proceedings
  • Provide advocacy and referrals to other agencies and services
  • Assist with victim impact statements at sentencing

The Victim’s Justice Center will also provide counseling services and resources, including:

  • Counseling, therapy and crisis intervention
  • Referrals to support groups for families involved in a homicide, elder abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault

The Victim’s Justice Center can assist with crime victims compensation claims. For those who qualify, this may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Crime scene clean-up expenses
  • Reasonable and necessary court transportation expenses
  • Essential personal property (prescription eyeglasses, for example)
